Monday, June 25, 2007 | I hope it serves as a warning to other developers who assert their control over our elected representatives to have Sunroad pay out of its own resources to have the building destroyed and rebuilt. While I have a problem with the concept of such waste, I would hope the building materials would at least be recycled to the full extent that is possible. More important than the waste issue, though, is the hopefully chilling message that developers who control the city council may think twice in the future about instigating projects that run afoul of the law, or that don’t take into account the concurrent infrastructure needs.
Of course, I’m probably just dreaming, here, because developers have had the City Council (well, except for Donna Fry) in their back pockets for years, and will probably continue to do so for many more to come.
